My kids figured out very quickly yesterday that sandwiches decorated with melted chocolate are something very yummy and asked last night what else I can make besides faces.
Well, I decided to make everyone their very own special sandwich after hearing all their suggestions.
Son #1 who plays the cello got this Cello Lunch. I cut the cello shape out of bread and decorated it with strings by using melted chocolate and a sandwich bag. I cut one of the edges off the sandwich bag, filled it with melted chocolate and decorated away. After the chocolate set I pasted it with more melted chocolate onto a separate sandwich and sealed the edges with more chocolate. I also packed a lunch box size cereal bar, a Jo Jo cookie from Trader Joe's and a white yogurt star cookie. To balance off all this chocolate I also added 1/2 an apple stenciled out with a small moon shaped cheese cutter. Not shown in the picture is ice water and a yogurt :)
Son #2 is a huge Batman fan and got this Batman lunch. I used more of the melted chocolate to draw on the Batman sign and he brought just as his brother a cereal bar, two cookies and 1/2 an apple. Ice water and a yogurt were in the lunch bag.
Son #3 loves trucks and I made him a Recycling Truck Lunch. After drawing the Recycling truck, I added a robot bento pick to make sure the truck had a driver :) He also has the same cereal bar, two cookies and apple and of course ice water and yogurt.
